Choosing an engaging focal point for your gallery wall is an important and difficult decision. If you can’t find the exact art you’re looking for, make it yourself! Match your color scheme perfectly with easy-to-make modern artwork using crafts paint and potatoes as stamps. This DIY project is so fun to make, and when framed, it looks like it came from a pricey home store. Check out our steps below to see how putting potatoes to paper can make some seriously cool art.
Set up your work surface. To prevent a mess, lay out newspaper or kraft paper, then position watercolor paper in your desired size on top. For a circular shape, cut potato in half using serrated knife. Cut in half again for a half-circle shape, or trim to other desired stamp shapes. Use a small paint brush to cover cut side of potato with a generous amount of crafts paint.
Press firmly onto watercolor paper and lift. Repeat across entire sheet, using varying paint colors and consistency. Set aside to dry.
